Using Blob Storage as the Backup Target

You can back up a Teradata VM residing in the Azure public cloud or a Teradata on-premises system to the Azure public cloud using Blob storage as the backup target. The backup may be restored from Blob storage to the same or a different Teradata Database VM in the Azure public cloud or a Teradata on-premises system.

Before using Blob storage as the backup target for Teradata Data Stream Utility (DSU), consider the following limitations:
  • DSU supports both hot and cold Blob storage, however, only one type may be used for each backup target group.
  • Only one DSC repository may be used. Backup jobs may not be exported from one DSC and imported into another DSC.
  • The target group for back up and restore of the DSC repository cannot be Blob storage, but must be a local disk file system.

Initial configuration of Blob storage target groups must be completed using the Teradata BAR portlets. See the Teradata Data Stream Architecture User Guide.
